Who are we ?
Ipalan is a small hiking agency located in La Gomera.
We are dedicated to guiding curious travelers on the trails of La Gomera. "Guiding" is much more than showing the way ... it is above all sharing our knowledge and our love for La Gomera with nature lovers, and travelers in search of authenticity ...
It is the best way to travel and discover La Gomera.
Walking gives you time ... La Gomera is a real "mini continent". Beauty is everywhere, the landscapes change at every turn of the path ... You have to take the time to soak up the landscape, to be moved and to fully enjoy this exceptional nature!
The beauty is in the grandiose landscapes, but also in the details. To see them, you have to stop and observe.
The topography (the terrain) ... Many of the most beautiful places on the island can only be reached by hiking. In La Gomera the trails are much more numerous than the roads ...
Allows you to relax, to find serenity ...
In line with sustainable tourism:
- We make the visitor aware of the importance of the conservation of this exceptional nature
- We participate in the cleaning of the trails
- We support the local economy: we stop in small restaurants typical of rural areas, we showcase local crafts, we work with other small local businesses engaged in sustainable tourism ...
Manager, tourism and mountain guide of La Gomera and the Canary Islands
I love to travel ... I had the chance to visit several countries in the world but La Gomera touched me like no other place. I discovered this island in 2007 and I fell in love immediately! We followed our intuition and we moved with our small family to La Gomera. A radical change and the best decision of our life!
Years go by, and my passion for this island has only increased. The beauty of the landscapes, the friendliness of its inhabitants, the serenity of the place, its culture ... still amaze me every day.
It is always a pleasure for me to be able to share this passion with nature lovers from all over Europe and the world. My goal is to make my adopted island feel, understood and appreciated with travelers!
